NO.

because when the aeroplane moves from america to india the motion of aeroplane is with respect to gravitation pull of earth.

for example when u jump  or throw a rock from a tall building like burz kalifa,the rock falls exactly down if there is no air resistance.

but this is not in the case of a space ship in space because it is out of earth''s gravity.
